I would appreciate opinions on this.
Trump plans to form a Patriot Party split off of the Republican Party. Lets say they get 20%, leaving Repubs with 35%, Democrats 45%. (Probably not right, but go with this...)
So: would this fragmentation be a boon to the Democrats? Or, by providing the swing votes against the other two parties would that actually empower the Patriot party? I know that sounds odd, but an Israeli cousin said that’s how it sometimes worked n Israel because the two largest parties negotiated deals with smaller factions.
